The eleven ABF filtration systems were chosen for the Changi NEWater plant for their filter design, self-cleaning capabilities and proven operation in Singapore’s first NEWater plant.
Amiad ABF filters are heavy-duty strainers with a self-cleaning capability in a range of treatment capacity sizes. The Changi NEWater uses the ABF filters to pre-treat secondary treated effluent. After this screening, subsequent micro-/ultra-filtration (MF/UF) and RO treatment technologies from various manufacturers are used to produce NEWater. The NEWater is used mainly for direct supply to industrial users with high standards required for their feed-water and a small proportion of NEWater is blended with rainwater in reservoirs as raw water feed to produce water for potable use.
Arik Dayan, CEO of Amiad Filtration Systems said: “The success of our filters is based on our dedication to providing creative, efficient and highly reliable solutions, as well as outstanding customer support. We are very proud to play such an important role in Singapore’s NEWater production and to contribute our expertise to the newest Changi NEWater plant, one of the world’s largest and most impressive water recycling facilities.”
